Frankel leads Hasner by 3 points in WPTV pollby Andrew Abramson | October 17th, 2012
Lois Frankel leads Adam Hasner 47 percent to 44 percent in a poll released today by WPTV/FL Democracy 2012.
The poll of 500 likely voters has a 4 percent margin of error. This comes the same day the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee poll showed Frankel with a 10-point lead over Hasner.
WPTV’s poll showed that 34 percent of voters in District 22 have a favorable view of Frankel while 31 percent have an unfavorable view. Hasner had a 31 percent favorability rating with 27 percent unfavorable.
President Obama is leading Mitt Romney 51 percent to 44 percent in the Palm Beach/Broward district, which has a 9 point edge in registered Democrats.
Frankel leads women voters 54 percent to 38 percent while Hasner leads male voters 50 percent to 39 percent.
Frankel lead non-affiliated voters 47 percent to 41 percent.
Perhaps surprising is that Hasner leads Frankel 47 percent to 43 percent in Palm Beach County, while Frankel has a 50 percent to 41 percent advantage in Broward County.
While both candidates are from Palm Beach County, Frankel is from the heart of the county in West Palm Beach, while Hasner is from Boca Raton in far south county. However, 20 percent of the district is in Boca/Delray while only 5 percent is in West Palm Beach.
